PREFACE. 



This book would not have been compiled but for the influence and 
service of three women to whom credit is due therefor : the suggestions 
of it by my mother some thirty years ago, and toward which she gath- 
ered records which would be unattainable now ; the clerical aid of my 
daughter Nellie ; and the present knowledge of Mrs. Sophia Wads- 
worth, rich in incident and suggestion, which has furnished clues to 
information essential to the fullness of the record, and otherwise irre- 
coverably lost. 

Books like this are not made in answer to a commercial demand, but 
rather to gratify private sentiment and various personal motives of no 
interest to the world at large. They are probably the unworthy fore- 
runners of a class of books which may be produced in the future, when 
the raising of men is made a subject of scientific study. What we lack 
is knowledge of ourselves — knowledge concerning the ancestry from 
whom we sprung, and of the hereditary vices, virtues and other charac- 
teristics we have had imposed upon us. Every one perceives the import- 
ance attached to the recorded pedigree of any domestic animal, and the 
increased value which it may confer upon them, though they may not 
recognize with equal clearness that human pedigrees are possibly to 
become of far greater value. The history of the human race abundantly 
sustains and exemplifies that law of evolution which is expressed as 
"the survival of the fittest/' and the fittest people are they for whose 
birth there have been combined desirable hereditary traits fitting them 
for the intense competition of modern life. Every child should possess 
a healthful, enduring body ; a mind capable of observing and reasoning 
with ability ; and nerve force for zealous, energetic and long-continued 
effort. Francis Galton says in " Hereditary Genius:" " The most illus- 
trious and so called ' well bred ' families of the human race are utter 
mongrels as regards their natural gifts of intellect and disposition." 
"As a new race can be obtained in animals and plants, and can be raised 
to so great a degree of purity that it will maintain itself, with moderate 
care, in preventing the more faulty members of the flock from breeding, 
so a race of gifted men might be obtained under exactly similar condi- 
tions." 



PREFACE. 

It is believed that in their evolution human societies have passed 
through a phase of social organization in which the children have taken 
their names and traced their descents on their mother's side only, the 
paternal lineage being ignored then even more than is the maternal one 
with us. In virtue of natural laws, each child combines characteristics 
of all the lineages which have been blended in its parents, and needs 
must take an account of all of them, as far as possible, in learning to 
know itself. Thus there is no reason, in genealogical records at least, 
why a full account of both paternal and maternal lineages should not be 
preserved and equally regarded. Our family names are only conven- 
tional designations, serviceable for individual identification, and are but 
one of many hundred names to which any one of us are naturally enti- 
tled. For in each living person is an admixture of the blood of families 
innumerable, being two with the parents, four with the grandparents, 
and so doubling with each generation counting backward in time. The 
number of ancestors becomes so large within a few centuries as to exceed 
in number the present population of Europe. While intermarriages 
have lessened the apparent number of them, even this circumstance does 
not remove very far back the date when the total population of the coun- 
try to which we trace our origin must be included among our ancestors, 
and thus in a literal sense, rather than in a sentimental one, " every man 
is my brother." 

While special effort has been made to secure accuracy of record in the 
text of this book, it is foreseen that many errors will be discovered in it. 
All that can be done to remedy such errors is to take an account of them 
and also of omissions and misapprehensions of statement other than 
those of records, any of which should be reported to the compiler, within 
the present year, addressed to 81 Fulton street, New York City. They 
will be properly written up in an interleaved copy of the book which 
will be deposited in the library of the New England Historical Genea- 
logical Society, Boston, Mass., for the benefit of genealogists. Possi- 
bly these corrections may be embodied in a printed circular for distribu- 
tion to all possessors of the book. 

August 1, 1890. D. TORREY. (8-15).

. In this book each person of the lineage is assigned a 
number which is nowhere duplicated. The numbers com- 
prise, first, a figure that designates the American born 
generation to which the person belongs, and second, their 
number within that generation. Each family paragraph 
has for its title the number in the lineage of that parent 
who belongs to the Torrey family, and such paragraphs 
are in numerical order. The lineage numbers are the 
index for all cross references.

FAMILIES 



OF 



THE TORREY ANCESTRY. 



Note. — The pioneers of the Torrey family in America were four 
brothers, William, James, Philip and Joseph, sons of Philip Torrey, of 
Somerset County, England. Researches made in England by Mr. H. A. 
Newton, of North Weymouth, Mass., secured the information con- 
tained herein of the English ancestry, and much of that relating to the 
families between that of Lieut. James Torrey and Abner Torrey has 
also been kindly furnished by him. 

1 

William Torrey (1), of Combe St. Nicholas, 
in the County of Somerset, England, who died in 
June, 1557, leaving a will, in which he mentions 
Thomasyne, his wife, and "every of his children," 
without naming them. 

2 

Philip Torrey (2), son of the above William, 
and Margaret, his wife. His will is dated in 1604 ; 
mentions his son William, and daughter Dorothie ; 
also his wife Margaret. 

3 

William Torrey (3), son of Philip (No. 2), and 
Jane, his wife. His wife died in 1639, at which date 
he was still living. The date of his death is not 
found. His son Philip had previously died. 



6 

4 

Philip Torrey (4), son of William (No. 3), and 
Alice, his wife. He died in June, 1621, leaving a 
will dated 21 of April, 1621, in which he mentions 
three daughters: Anne, Mary, and Sarah, and four 
sons: William (5), James (6), Philip (7), and Joseph 
(8). (The will of the wife Alice is dated 1634, and 
mentions by name the same seven children, and states 
that the daughter Mary was deceased ) 

These four sons all emigrated to America in 1640- 
1643, and located within a few miles of Boston, Mass., 
and seem to have been the ancestors of all the early 
families of the name in America. William (5), and 
Joseph (8), first located in Weymouth, James (6), in 
Scituate, and Philip (7), in Roxbury. 

5 

William Torrey (5), of Weymouth, Mass., 
son of Philip (No. 4), usually designated as " Captain 
William Torrey," was born in Combe St. Nicholas, 
Somersetshire, England, in 1608. The church records 
show that he was baptized on 21 December of that 
year. 

On 17th March, 1629, he was married to Agnes 
Combe, of Combe St. Nicholas. She died before he 
left England, and he was appointed administrator of 
her estate. In 1640 he came to America, bringing 
with him two sons, Samuel, born in 1632, and Wil- 
liam, born in 1638, and settled in Weymouth, which 
was thereafter his home. It is believed that he 
brought his second wife with him from England. Six 
children were born to him in Weymouth, as below : 

1-1. Samuel, born in England, 1632. 

1-2. William, born in England, 1638. 



7 

1-3. Naomi, born in Weymouth, December 3, 1641. 

1-4. Mary, born in Weymouth, December 3, 1642. 

1-5. Micajah, born in Weymouth, October 12, 1643. 

1-6. Josiah, born in Weymouth. 

1-7. Judith, born in Weymouth. 

1-8. Angel, born in Weymouth. 

Besides which he took two small children of his 
brother James, after their father's death, and brought 
them up with his family, viz., Jonathan and Mary, 
both of whom are in some of the records of early his- 
tory erroneously referred to as his own children. He 
died in Weymouth, June 10, 1690. 

William Torrey (from Johnson's Universal Cyclopedia), settled at 
Weymouth, where he became a magistrate and captain of the trainband 
of the colony: was many years representative for Weymouth in the Gen- 
eral Court, of which, as he wrote a good hand, he was usually clerk or 
secretary, and was a member of its committees whenever they had to do 
with education or literature, as in the case of that appointed to examine 
Eliot's Indian Bible. He wrote a work on the millenium entitled "A 
Discourse Concerning Futurities, etc.," first printed by Rev. Dr. Prince, 
in 1757, with a biographical notice. 

6 

Lieut. James Torrey (6), of Scituate, Mass., 
married Ann, daughter of Elder Wm. Hatch, Nov. 2, 
1643. He died July 6, 1665, from injuries received 
from an accidental explosion of gunpowder. (Was 
she the Ann Torrey that married John Phillips, in 
Marshfield, April 3, 1677?) Their children were, as 
printed in "Davis's Landmarks of Plymouth": 

1-11. James, born September 3, 1644. 

1-12. William, born March 15, 1647 ; probably died 
young. 

1-13. Joseph, born March 18, 1649. 

1-14. Damaris, born October 26, 1651. 



8 

1-15. Jonathan, born September 20, 16o4 ; ancestor 
of Abner Torrey. 

1-16. Mary, born February 14, 1657 ; married Josiah 
Blood, of Concord, Mass., February 3, 1690, and had 
eleven children; see "Potter's Old Families of Con- 
cord." 

1-17. Josiah, born 1658. 

1-18. Sarah, born February 9, 1661. 

1-19. Joanna, born May 4, 1663. 

1-20. Bethia, born 1665. 

Lieut. James Torrey (6), according to Plymouth Colony Records, 
came from England previous to 1643, as he was married in that year. 
June 8, 1655, he was made lieutenant for Scituate by the court, being 
sworn and admitted a freeman at the same meeting of it, and was made 
deputy magistrate by the court June 3, 1656. He was frequently 
engaged in business for the colony up to the time of his death, 1665, 
after which the court gave for the benefit of his four younger sons two 
hundred acres of land. 

The following extract from- the records is interest- 
ing. 

At a session of the General Court of Plymouth Col- 
ony held September 27, 1664, the following order is 
recorded : 

' ' Lief tenant James Torrey is authorized by the court to make con- 
tractes of marriage in the towne of Scittuate, and likewise to admin- 
nester an oath to giue euidence to the grand enquest, and likewise to 
adminnester an oath to any witnesses for the tryall of a case as occation 
may require ; and incase any pson resideing within this jurisdiction 
shall have occation to commence a suite against any Stranger or for- 
raigner, it shallbee then lawfull for the said Lieftenant Torrey to issue 
out warrants in his maties name to bind ouer any pson or psons to 
ensware the said suite att the Court of His Matie to bee holden att Ply- 
mouth att any time by attachment or sumons as occation shall require, 
and likewise to graunt subpenaes as occation may require." 

An account of the accident by which Lieut. Torrey 
lost his life was found in the records of the first church 
of Roxbury, Mass., made by Rev. Samuel Danforth, 



9 

and published in the N. Eng. Hist, and G-eneal. Regis- 
ter, page 163, Vol. 34, 1880, which reads as follows : 

"July 5th. There happened a uery sad accident at Scituate, lieft. 
Torrey having rec'd orders fro the Gouernor of Plymouth (by reason of 
the King's letter yt informes of ye Hollanders coming ag'st vs) to look to 
ye powder & ammunition of ye Town. He went into ye house of 
Goodma Tickner where ye Magazine of ye Town was, wch was but two 
barrels of powder & opened ym & while ye said lieftenant was drying 
some of ye powder abroad upon boards & dooers by some accident, G. 
knows what ye powder was fired both that in ye house and that abroad, 
& ye house blown & broken in piece3, * * * ye lieftenant 
was sadly burnt esp'ly on his breast, face, hands & armes, yet he lived 
till ye next day & then dyed." 

7 

Philip Torrey (7), of Roxbury, born 1615, came 
from England with William Torrey, and from the 
same place. Was admitted freeman May 29, 1644. 
Married October 1st, 1647, Mary, widow of John Scar- 
borough. Had children : 

1-21. Joseph, born July 2, 1649. 

1-22. Jonathan, born June 16, 1651. 

1-23. Mary, born April 2, 1654. 

In March, 1674, he, aged fifty-nine years, testified that he came with 
William and his son Samuel to New England from Combe St. Nicholas, 
in Somerset, "there living until the year 1640 (yeoman), in that year 
removing to New England;" that he knew them before and ever since, 
and George Fry united in the same testimony. He died in Roxbury 
May 12, 1686. 

8 

Joseph Torrey (8), of Rehoboth, in 1643 (from 
Savage's Genealogical Dictionary) "went to Newport 
in 1654, or earlier. Was on the Freeman's list 1655." 
Died 1676. Had one daughter who married and had 
children. 

1-24. Name unknown. 

" With an associate met Denison and Danvers, Massachusetts commis- 
sioners 1664, at Rehoboth, about some question of jurisdiction ; was a 



10 

lieutenant, and in 1670 sent with John Green and others as commission- 
ers to adjust bounds with Connecticut, ruling elder of the church of John 
Clark at the time of his death, 1676. Perhaps he married a daughter, 
who may have been the eldest of that John Green, as by the genealogies 
I have seen." 

(From Plymouth Colony Records): Joseph Torrey admitted freeman 
June 7th, 1648 ; was on the jury-grand inquest the same year. Was 
under bonds to keep the peace in 1646 or-7, and in 1649 and 1650, in the 
sum of ten pounds, and was with his wife and others presented to the 
court for meeting at their houses on the Lord's day. 

Joseph Torrey was prominent in the affairs of the Providence and 
Newport settlements. He was a representative from Newport in 1656, 
and, with few exceptions, every year thereafter up to 1674. He was 
Secretary of the Colony seven years, Colonial Attorney 1671-2. He died 
in 1676. Concerning his family little is known. Austin's Genealogical 
Dictionary of Rhode Island prints an extract from a letter from Samuel 
Hubbard, of Newport, dated November 29, 1676, concerning him, as 
follows: " Having but one daughter, living at Squamicut * * * he 
sent a boat so as his wife, his daughter, and his son-in-law and all their 
children * * * all came." 

1-15 

Jonathan Torrey (1-15 from 6) went to Wey- 
mouth, probably to live with his uncle William, who 
was his guardian. He married Ruth, daughter of 
George Fry. He died at Weymouth, June 7, 1718. 
She died April 28, 1724, in her 74th year. Their chil- 
dren, all born in Weymouth, were : 

2-1. Maky, born September 25, 1676 ; married, 
Norton. 

2-2. Ruth, born August 17, 1679 ; married, Allen. 

2-3. Ann, born March 3, 1682 ; married, Butler. 

2-4. Jonathan, born May 25, 1684. 

2-5. Sarah, married, first, Saml. King, second, 
Ebenezer Hovey. 

2-6. Joshua, born November 1, 1690. 

Jonathan Torrey (1-15) is given by Savage as a son 
of William Torrey (5), the error arising from the rela- 



11 

tion of guardian and of being a member of his family. 
Either he or Jonathan (1-22) was a soldier in the King 
Philip War, and was reported as "in garrison at Men- 
don," in 1675. 

2-4= 

Jonathan Torrey (2-4 from 1-15), born May 
25, 1684, in Weymouth, who in early life left his home 
in the north part of the town and went to the south 
part or South Parrish, as it was then called, adjoining 
Abington. The name of his first wife was Margaret, 
but I have no further account of her. She had but 
one child : 

3-1. Jonathan, who was born October 2, 1711. 

Jonathan (2-4) married a second wife, Lydia Green, 
August 9, 1712, and by her had : 

3-2. Margaret, born June 18, 1713. (d. July 29, 
1738). m. Wm. Holbrook, February 20, 1734. 

3-3. David, born January 4, 1717 ; ancestor of a 
large family now living at South Weymouth. 

3-4. Adam, born February 4, 1723. 

3-1 

Jonathan Torrey (3-1 from 2-4), born October 
2, 1711, in Weymouth, died April 9, 1784, married 
December 18, 1735, Deborah Shaw, of Abington, by 
whom he had only one child : 

4-1. Abner, born at Weymouth, December 12, 
1736. 

The mother died December 16, 1736, and the father 
married Sarah Smallpiece, December 8, 1737, by whom 
he had, as given in u Davis's Landmarks of Ply- 
mouth," the following children : 

4-2. Sarah, born May 2, 1738. 

4-3. Deborah, born October 16, 1739, 



12 

4-4. Jonathan, born September 28, 1741. 

4-5. Ruth, born September 18, 1743. 

4-6. Margaret, born xipril 7, 1746. 

4-7. Olive, born July 17, 1748. 

4-8. Molly, born November 13, 1750. 

4-9. Elizabeth, born May 20, 1752. 
4-10. Jane, born September 2, 1754. 

4-1 

Aimer Torrey (4-1 from 3-1), a carpenter and 
farmer, born December 12, 1736, in Weymouth, Mass., 
and died, probably in 1826, in Hamilton, N. Y. He 
married, March 9, 1758, in Abington, Mass., Lydia 
Beal, of Weymouth, born August 26, 1738, died 
August 25, 1806, in Plainfield, Mass., daughter of 
William and Hannah (Smith) Beal, of Weymouth. 
Their children, all born in Abington, Mass., were : 

5-1. Jonathan Torrey, born December 28, 1758. 
5-2. Hannah Torrey, born December 30, 1759. 
5-3. Elias Torrey, born April 20, 1764. 
5-4. Abner Torrey, born probably in 1767. 
5-5. Barney Torrey, born January 10, 1771. 
5-6. Molly Torrey, date of birth unknown. 
5-7. Betsey Torrey, born probably in 1777. 
5-8 William Torrey, born December 28, 1778. 
5-9 Olive Torrey, born probably in 1783. 

Abner Torrey participated as a humble citizen in those events which, 
possibly, beyond all others, have determined the great and successful 
career of the United States of America, such as the ' ' French and Indian 
War" of 1756 to 1760, which secured nearly all of North America for the 
English speaking people, and the evolution of English institutions ; and 
in the "War of Independence," of 1775 to 1783. After the war last 
referred to, Abner Torrey left the seaboard, where four generations of 
his ancestors slept, and joined in the great work of redeeming a wilder- 
ness and making a country. In 1785, the year after the death of his 
father, he moved with his family to the town of Cummington and Plain- 



13 

field, Hampshire County, Mass. Some idea of the wilderness of the sec- 
tion may be inferred from an incident, the memory of which survives in 
the minds of his grandchildren. It was the stealing of his pigs from the 
pen by bears living in the surrounding forests. Cummington and the 
neighboring towns were settled largely by people from Abington and 
adjoining towns, and the intermarriages of the succeeding generation (the 
fifth in this genealogy) was by members of the same families, as had 
been the case before the migration began. In the case of Abner Torrey, 
he had been preceded in moving to Cummington by his son Jonathan, 
whose children were all born in the then wilderness (see 5-1). In 1804, 
Elijah Nash, whose wife was Betsey Torrey (5-7), moved to Central New 
York, and made his farm and home in the town of Hamilton, Madison 
County, New York. Several families of the Torrey connection, of both 
fifth and sixth generations, soon followed. After Lydia (Beal) Torrey 
died, in 1806, Abner Torrey lived first with his son William (5-8), but he 
dying in 1807, the arrangement was broken up, and Abner lived with his 
son, Dr. Barney Torrey, until in 1817, when he was taken to Hamilton, 
N. Y., where he lived the remainder of his days with his son Jonathan, 
and near to his daughter Betsey. He died probably in 1826 or 1827, and 
was buried in the Poolville graveyard. 

He sang agreeably to his acquaintances, and knew many songs of army 
life and events. A granddaughter, now living, remembers calling on the 
neighbors with him, and sitting in his lap while he sang his army songs. 
Another recalls the circumstance of his religious feeling, and that he was 
constantly absorbed in prayer while at work in the fields or elsewhere. 

He was, as were his sons, inclined to mechanical occupations, perform- 
ing such carpenter work as his neighbors needed, making wooden-ware, 
etc. Probably always in the possession of a little shop, a small farm, 
and living the simple life and ways of all those about him. If our polit- 
ical institutions endure, it will be because of the simple life led by the 
generation to which our subject belonged, as well as by many of their 
descendants. 

At the time of compiling this record, but little is known of the record 
of Abner Torrey's military life. When fuller publication has been made 
of town and State archives in Massachusetts, and those in possession 
of the National Government at Washington, further and more specific 
information can be gathered. Military ardor burned in the breasts of all 
men in Abington (as elsewhere in Massachusetts), not only at the time of 
the " French and Indian War," but also in the time of the " Revolution- 
ary War." Family tradition, gathered from his children and grandchil- 
dren, who knew and associated with him, establish the fact that he was 
in the armies of both wars. (See the Appendix relative to military rec- 



14 

ords.) Tradition indicates that he was in an expedition against Quebec 
either in 1758 or 1775-6. He was probably in the siege of Boston, 
and also probably with General Lincoln in the operations against Bur- 
goyne, in 1777. One tradition concerns a movement up the Mohawk 
River, possibly that of 1755, and another of his being a prisoner at New 
York, wherein he fared better than others, as he served as cook, and thus 
escaped many hardships. If his family ever had any records they were 
lost a long time ago, and no one thought of writing out his recounts of 
his army life, which were, it is said, so often the subject of his conversa- 
tions.

Jonathan Torrey (5-1 from 4-1), a carpenter 
and farmer, born December 28, 1758, in Abington, 
Mass., died June 14, 1837, in Hamilton, N. Y. Married, 
June 16, 1779, probably in Abington, Abigail Stowell, 
born, probably, in 1755, in Abington, died September 
14, 1843, in Hamilton, N. Y., sister of the Caleb 
Stowell named in 5-6. Their children, all born in or 
near Plainfield, Mass., were : 

6-1. Jonathan Torrey, born August 18, 1781. 

6-2. Elias Torre r, born February "5, 1783. 

6-3. Hannah Torrey, born in 1784. 

6-4. Lydia Torrey, born August 18, 1785. 

6-5. Abner Torrey. 

6-6. Amos Torrey. 

6-7. Daniel Torrey. 

6-8. Eleanor Torrey. 

These four children died young, and the dates of their birth and 
death are undetermined at this time. 

The compiler has been unable to learn the date at which Jonathan 
Torrey moved to Hampshire County, Mass. He left there probably in 
1808 with his son Elias and their families, moving to Hamilton, Mad- 
ison County, N. Y. He followed a mixed occupation of carpentering, 
making wooden ware and farming. As a Revolutionary pensioner, 
good natured, genial and social, with the then customary fondness for 
hard cider and toddy, he was well known and liked by all who knew 
him. Both were buried in private ground on the Hosea Thayer farm.

Jonathan Torrey enlisted in Abington, Mass., January 1, 1776, for 
twelve months under Capt. Wm. Reed, in the Massachusetts regiment 
commanded by Col. John Bailey, and was in the battle at White Plains, 
October 28, 1776, and discharged at Peekskill, N. Y. What other mil- 
itary service he may have seen is not known specifically at this writing. 
The reader is referred to the Appendix relative to military records. 

Note.— The first pension act (1818) was for nine months in Continen- 
tal line, and applicants usually specified only that service which covered 
the required nine months. Shorter periods were State troops and militia. 
At siege of Boston no service was over eight months in one enlistment ; 
all discharged in December, 1775, that enlisted early.

Hannah Torrey (5-2 from 4-1), born December 
BO, 1759, in Abington, where she married Joseph 
Vining, and where she passed her days. No specific 
information concerning her has been ascertained, far- 
ther than the name of the man she married, and that 
they had no children. All tradition agree in these 
statements.

Elias Torrey (5-3 from 4-1), born April 10, 1764, 
in Abington, Mass. He moved to Charleston, S. C, 
where he was a harbor pilot, and was drowned in 
1792, when the pilot boat and all on board was lost. 
He married, about 1785, Mary Toussiger, born Decem- 
ber 24, 1769, died May 24, 1828, daughter of James 
Toussiger (a Huguenot) and Elizabeth Lambeth, of 
England. He left her a widow with three children, all 
born in Charleston, S. C, as follows : 

6-9. Ezekiel Torrey, born in 1786, died 1821. He 
was first married to Miss Ann Louis, who soon died, 
childless. He married, second, Miss Eliza Clarkson, 
who survived him. They had one son, Clarkson Tor- 
rey (7-21), born in 1815, died 1840, unmarried.

1790, died April, 1793. 

Widow Mary Torrey married, second, February 2, 1794, in Charles- 
ton, Capt. Frederick Burrows, a harbor pilot, by whom she had several 
children, and from one, a daughter, the above record was obtained in 
1890.

Aimer Torrey (5-4 from 4-1), a quarry operator, 
born about 1767 in Abington, Mass., died May 1, 
1809, in Quincy, Mass., "aged 42 years." Married 
Susannah Hobart, who died January 11, 1849, in 
Quincy, Mass., " aged 73 years." Their children, the 
first two born in Dorchester, Solomon in Spectacle 
Island, and all the others in Quincy, Mass., were : 

6-12. Abner Torrey, born May 12, 1794. 

6-13. Joshua Torrey, born November 19, 1795. 

6-14. William Torrey, born May 19, 1797. 

6-15. Susannah Torrey, born April 30, 1798. 

6-16. Nancy Torrey, born May 20, 1799. 

6-17. Solomon Torrey, born May 27, 1800. 

6-18. Elias Torrey, born September 6, 1801. 

6-19. Adeline Torrey, born November 7, 1802. 

6-20. Irene Torrey, born December 23, 1804. 

6-21. Sarah Eliza Torrey, born July 24, 1808, 
died July 16, 1809. 

The circumstance of Abner Torrey's death, before any of his children 
were old enough to have any interest in his family history, and the fact 
that all of his immediate relatives had left that section of the country 
nearly ten years before his marriage, while he was but a young man, and 
the further circumstance that all these children were dead before these 
genealogical inquiries were started, made the compiler work under great 
difficulty in solving the problems. It is understood that no member of 
the Quincy family knew anything of its lineage back of Abner Torrey 
(5-4). While no person of the connection in the West, now living, has 



17 

visited the Quincy branch of the family in the maintenance of family 
acquaintance, there are those who know, as a matter of family discus- 
sion, that their parents and brothers and sisters did make in former years 
just such visits. The memory of these visits, and the recitation of a 
multiplicity of circumstances connected therewith, leave no doubt in the 
mind of the compiler that Abner (5-4) was a son of Abner (4-1). Sev- 
eral desirable dates of family events and the parentage of the wife Susan- 
nah are yet undetermined, not from any insurmountable difficulty, but 
from apathy of those who should be most interested in trying to deter- 
mine them. However, the identification now made is all that could be 
had in any case short of documentary proof, which could be found, no 
doubt, if the importance of the case required it. 

His early death, leaving a widow with nine children, the eldest but 
fourteen years old, imposed a burthen upon her which any one might 
shrink from accepting. She met the issue bravely. Her sons became 
active business men, some of them acquiring large fortunes ; her daugh- 
ters made good marriage alliances, and her descendants are numerous, 
have honorable records, and are reasonably prosperous.

Barney Torrey (5-5 from 4-1) was born in 
Abington, Mass,, June 10, 1771, and died April 8, 1837, 
in Poolville, Madison County, N. Y. He married, 
June 27, 1795, Lucy Cunningham, the only daughter 
of Capt. John Cunningham, of Spencer, Mass. She 
was born in Spencer, June 11, 1775, and died June 11, 
1854, in Welshfield, Geauga Co., 0. He was a physi- 
cian, and prominent in public matters. They moved 
to Hamilton, N. Y., in 1829. Their children, all born 
in Plainfield (except Dolly, born in Marlborough, 
Vt.), were : 

6-23. Dolly Torrey, born March 23, 1796. 

6-24. Dura Torrey, born March 25, 1798. 

6-25. Delphia Torrey, born September 23, 1801,

6-29. Orra Torrey, born December 17, 1813. 
6-30. Harriet Torrey, born February 23, 1816. 

Dr. Barney Torrey was fourteen years old when brought with his 
father's family from Abington to Plainfield, Mass. He was a person of 
superior abilities. He studied medicine with the physician of the town, 
Dr. Bond, and located for practice in the town of Marlborough, Vt. In 
a short time Dr. Bond gave up practicing in Plainfield, and a formal 
written petition was signed by the prominent inhabitants of that place, 
asking Dr. Torrey to settle with them, which he did, probably in 1797. 
For several years he was the only physician in Plainfield. 

He was very religious in feelings, and pure minded in thought, and 
had a vein of poetic appreciation in his make up that was sometimes 
voiced in written verse. He used to lead the singing in the church. 
Kind hearted, charitable, and ever ready to yield his own right, rather 
than to oppress others ; he never sued anyone. While Plainfield was on 
a well traveled stage route Dr. Torrey, who was prominent in many 
public affairs, was interested in stage lines, hotels, etc , and was always 
ready to join in advancing any matter of public enterprise that might 
come up. About 1829, he moved to Poolville, N. Y., and died in 1837. 

After the death of Dr. Barney Torrey, his widow moved to Geauga 
County, Ohio, where she lived the remainder of her life with her son 
Barney and daughter Harriet, neither of whom ever married. Her 
father, Capt. John Cunningham, was a captain in the Revolutionary 
Army, of Scotch-Irish descent. His wife was a Thomson, from Lon- 
donderry, N. H. Her ancestors were Scotch Covenanters that fled to 
Ireland to secure religious freedom.

Mass., Caleb Stowell, a farmer; baptized November 
18, 1764, in Abington, Mass.; died May 27, 1839, in or

Caleb Stowell, who married for his second wife Molly Torrey, was a 
brother of Abigail Stowell, who married Jonathan Torrey (5-1), and a 
brother of David Stowell, the father of Mehitable and Wm. J. Stowell 
(see 5-8, 6-47, 7-13 and 7-15). He was married three times, but had 
no children by his third wife, who was, it is said, a widow Torrey, and 
that they were married in Lebanon, N. Y. By his first wife, his children 
were as follows : 

Bakney Stowell, born March 2, 1790. 

Polly Stowell, born September 14, 1791 (unmarried). 

Betsey Stowell, b. August 14, 1793, died unmarried April 27, 1814.

Betsey Torrey (5-7 from 4-1) was born in 1777, 
in Abington, Mass., died January 3, 1860, in Hamilton, 
Madison County, N. Y., married September 10, 1795, 
in Plainfield, Elijah Nash, Jr., who was born, prob- 
ably in 1770, and died April 5, 1847, in Hamilton, N. 
Y., son of Elijah and Betsey ( ) Nash. They 

moved to Hamilton in February and March, 1804. 
Their children, of whom the first four were born in 
Plainfield, and the others in Hamilton, were :

6-44. Betsey Nash, born March 2, 1815. 

Elijah Nash came, as stated, from Plainfield, and was descended, it is 
believed, from a family of that name, which was a numerous one in the 
towns of Plymouth and Norfolk Counties. Any one sufficiently inter- 
ested could trace the lineage back several generations beyond doubt. 
Elijah Nash had several brothers. One, Jacob, remained in Plainfield. 
Zenas and Thomas moved, it is said, to Hamilton, and a sister Sally is 
named in 6-24.

ried December 4, 1805, Joseph Gurney, Jr., a farmer, 
and son of Joseph and Tamar (Jackson) Gurney, of 
Abington. He was born probably in 1783, and died 
January 4, 1862. She died January 13, 1861. Their

nine years lived in Hamilton or Sherburn (Chenango County). In 1818 
they were living in Lyonstown, Ontario County, N. Y., and were there 
in 1822. In 1831 they were living in Hamilton again. Near the close 
of life they lived for a time in Orleans County, N. Y., near several of

Lydia Torrey (6-4 from 5-1), born August 18, 

1785, died May 1, 1858, married December 6, 1808 (all 
in Plainfield), Jeremiah Stockwell, a farmer, born 
July 23, 1788, in Plainfield, Mass., died May 20, 1876, 
in New Philadelphia, O., son of Jeremiah and Hannah 
(Beswick) Stockwell. Their children, all born in 
Plainfield, Mass., were : 

7-13. Sarah Stockwell, born September 8, 1809. 

7-14. Jeremiah Stockwell, born March 23, 1812. 

7-15. Daniel Stockwell, born February 13, 1814.

ber 9, 1821. 

7-19. Mary Ann Stockwell, born June 18, 1824. 

7-20. Charles H. Stockwell, born June 10, 1827. 

Jeremiah Stockwell, who married Lydia Torrey, received only such 
an education as the common schools of Plainfield furnished at that early 
day ; yet he was a person of remarkable natural ability, which was 
greatly improved by extensive reading. He formed his opinions with 
great care and deliberation, and when once formed he held to them with 
the utmost tenacity ; and it has been truthfully said of him that he never, 
in the slightest degree, changed his religious or political convictions. In 
his religious belief he Was a Baptist of the strictest sect, and strongly 
devoted to his church and its principles through life. He was mainly 
instrumental in the foundation of a Baptist Church in Plainfield, and so 



24 

long as he remained in that place was its chief support, financially and 
otherwise. The church being unable to support a minister more than 
half of the time, he, for a period of over thirty years, occupied the pul- 
pit, and conducted religious services on alternate Sabbaths, to the entire 
satisfaction of the church and congregation.

roaming through the States of New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Vir- 
ginia and Ohio to the town of Canal Dover, in the latter named State. 
This was about 1834. He went into business as a country merchant, and

was the first Democrat elected in the district, which before then had 
always elected the Whig candidate. He served for two years with dis- 
tinction, and then was defeated on the issues raised by the new-born

tions for placing their home. Their choice fell to Rock River Valley, at 
Oregon, 111., where they found one of the most charming landscapes of 
the then wild West, and where they are living January, 1890, on their 
farm, located as above. Mr. Wadsworth continued as local preacher 
several years, and for many years served the community by filling vari- 
ous township offices. , 

After the death of her mother, in 1854, Harriet Torrey lived with this 
family, and received that considerate treatment which the warm love of 
an affectionate sister could prompt for so great an invalid. 

Mrs. Sophia Wadsworth has been blessed with the possession of a 
lively disposition and that intelligent inquisitiveness that has stored her 
mind with varied knowledge of the world, which she is able to convey 
in conversation or by writing. In family and genealogical matters she 
has proved the possessor of a retentive memory and large fund of 
information, which she gives freely, and which has materially aided in 
the compilation of this book, and every person benefited b}' this book is

Harriet Newell Torrey (6-30 from 5-5), was 
born iu Plainfield, Hampshire County, Mass., Febru- 
ary 23, 1816, and died June 23, 1883, at Oregon, 111. 

She was named after Harriet Newell, a missionary to India, who had 
died young in years, and whose biography and letters were widely read 
at the time, and exercised great influence in religious circles. Harriet 
N. Torrey was never married. She lived with her father during girl- 
hood, moved with him in 1829 to Poolville, N". Y., and attended him 
during his fatal sickness, which ended in 1837. When about 21 years 
of age she, with her mother and brother Barney, moved to Geauga 
County, O. They made a family which continued until June, 1854, 
when her mother died. Soon afterwards she went to Oregon, 111 , and 
from that time until her death, in 1883, lived there with her sister, Mrs. 
Sophia Wadsworth. 

She was religious in feeling rather than in protestation and display, and 
had deep felt sympathies for the suffering and down-trodden, whoever 
and wherever they might be. She was a lover of nature, and held com- 
munion with its visible forms, in flowers, fields and forests. She had a 
broad and vigorous mind, which reached its conclusions by deductive 
processes, which she expressed bravely and regardless of consequences, 
as is the case with capable people. She received a physical injury while 
young, from which she suffered greatly, and which restricted the devel- 



34 

op merit and manifestation of her powers. She was a Garrisonian aboli- 
tionist, when the distinction was one that many wise and able people 
shrunk from acknowledging. Under the hard restrictions which her 
bad health compelled, she occasionally lectured from the public stand in 
her home neighborhood, and corresponded with newspapers in advocacy 
of her proposed reforms and her social or political theories. She also 
gave expression to her sentiments in verse, which she published in cur- 
rent newspapers, and which frequently were widely copied in other 
papers. She studied medicine, a profession for which she had aptness, 
but her health did not allow her to practice it.

The widow of Henry (Jackson) Torrey married sec- 
ond, March 15, 1860, in Hamilton, N. Y., Col. Elijah 
Staples, by whom she had no children. 

Henry Torrey (7-5)— he never used his middle name, "Jackson"— 
was a machinist, and carried on that business at various places in cen- 
tral New York. * He learned first the trade of wagonmaking, but as it 
did not give scope for his mechanical tastes, he determined some years 



45 

after marriage to change his occupation, which he did, and became a 
" finisher," and always possessed his own machine shop, which was of a 
size to require the services of four or five men, and in which he 
made machinery for woolen mills, and mills of such other kinds as in 
those days were scattered throughout the country. He was temperate 
in his habits, with a sanguine or optimistic temperament, simple in his 
tastes, a man of integrity, and well liked by his associates. He died 
leaving his widow without means of support, and with a family of six 
children. From necessity the family was scattered, the children found 
each their line in life, and all of them maintained honorable conduct 
and secured reasonable prosperity. 

Concerning the parentage of Julia Webster, it is known as a tradition 
of her father's family that he was descended from one of the earliest col- 
onists of Hartford, a Lieutenant Governor of that colony. John Web- 
ster, born April 28, 1778, in Glassonburg, (?) Conn., and Thankful Rob- 
bards, of East Hartford, Conn., born April 7, 1773, were married April 

13, 1800, and soon moved into the wilderness of Hamilton, Madison 
County, N. Y., where they had a large family of children, and where 
they passed their lives. John Webster was a son of a John Webster, 
who died October 1, 1781, and who in turn was the son of a Jonathan 
Webster. 

Julia Webster was born to a life of hardship and trouble, the duties 
and trials of which she met bravely, and was ever ready, prompted by 
very warm sympathies, to give every service in her power to aid others 
in their troubles and afflictions. Her education was such as the schools 
in early pioneer settlements afforded, which she improved in after life as 
her opportunities permitted, and she saw clearly the advantages of the 
advanced educational privileges of more recent times which she desired 
for her children.

The following extract is from the Chandler Genealogy : 
Julius C. Chandler "learned printing in the office of Judge Daniel P. 
Thompson, the historian of Vermont, in Montpelier, 1848 to 1852, and 
established himself as editor and publisher in Wisconsin, when about 22 
years of age. He was widely known as an able and facetious writer, and 
was afterwards spoken of as " the wit of the Wisconsin press." In 1861 
he enlisted as a private in the United States service in Company G, 
2d Wisconsin Volunteers, declining a commission which was offered 
him." 

' He was in the first battle of Bull Run, and wrote an account of it, and 
of his being disabled in it, which was published in the " Daily Cleveland 
Herald," of July 29, 1861, and which is copied in the Chandler Gene- 
alogy. After the war he returned to his chosen employment at Friend- 
ship, and afterwards at Baraboo, Wisconsin, where he lived the remain- 
der of his life.

Concerning Hon. Charles Upson, the following account is condensed 
from a biographical article by Hon. Thomas M. Cooley, in Volume 9, 
Michigan Pioneer Collection : Hon. Charles Upson was one of the lead- 
ing and most influential citizens of the State of Michigan. He was the 
son of a farmer, and early in life spent his summers on his father's farm, 
and first attending and afterwards teaching school during the winters. 
He was a diligent student, and secured a good practical education, 
which fitted him for the varied and useful public career which he after- 
wards found. He removed to Michigan in 1845, and was admitted to 
the bar in 1847, and was in some useful and honorable public office dur- 
ing the remainder of his life. He was deputy county clerk, county 
clerk, prosecuting attorney, State senator, railroad commissioner, circuit 
judge, representative in congress, and a member of several important 
commissions. In none of the positions filled by him did he disappoint 
public expectations, either in respect to the ability which he brought to 
the discharge of his duties, or the fidelity with which he performed 
them. 

" In no conventional sense, but in heart, in principle, and in conduct, 
Charles Upson was a good lawyer, a useful citizen, a kind husband and 
father, a man of sterling integrity and of benevolent disposition. He 
was, therefore, a thoroughly good man." After his death his widow 
married (2d) Jacob Franklin Pratt, September 17, 1888, in Coldwater, 
where both reside March 1890. He was son of John and Lemey (Qillott) 
Pratt, Courtland County, N. Y.

D. Torrey's school privileges were only those of a country public 
school, until after his father's death (when he was 15 years old). He 
had a taste for reading, which kept a book in his hand whenever pos- 
sible, and for which he was much indebted to his mother's advice and 
encouragement. He attended the academy (Gilbertsville, K. Y.) a few 
months, and then bound himself as an apprentice and learned the trade 
of molder in an iron foundry. In 1851 he " did chores " for his board 
and attended the academy for one year. He then followed his trade, 
living one year at Lawrenceville, Tioga County, Pa., and in the spring 
of 1854 removed west, locating at Davenport, Iowa. The following 
year he was employed in the passenger department of the Pennsylvania 
railroad. 

In 1861 he abandoned his business and enlisted as a private soldier in 
Co. A, 2d Ohio Vol. Inf. "three months men," and was in the first 
battle of Bull Run. He then traveled during one year for the railroad 
company, seeing much of the war operations in the "border States," 
and in July, 1862, was commissioned as second lieutenant and recruiting 
officer, and recruited a company in Davenport, Iowa He was commis- 
sioned captain of his company, which became Co. D, 20th Iowa Inf. 
Their first campaign was in the "Army of the Frontier, " through south- 
west Missouri and northwestern Arkansas, extending from August to 



94 

May, during which time they marched over 1,000 miles, were in some 
skirmishes, fought the battle of Prairie Grove, and captured the town 
of Van Buren, on the Arkansas river. In June the command (that of 
Gen. F. J. Herron) joined the investing force in front of Vicksburg, and 
was at the extreme left of the Union line. Here Capt. Torrey was 
picket officer, and under constant fire for weeks, until the surrender. 
His exposure nearly cost him his life, for he was stricken with typho- 
malarial fever. After leaving the hospital in November he joined his 
company at Brazos, Santiago, Texas, and was at the capture of Mus- 
tang Island. He was appointed acting commissary for the expedition 
(Bank's Texas coast expedition), and was captured a prisoner of war 
December 14, 1862. He was held at Houston, Texas, and at Camp 
Ford Tyler, Texas, until exchanged at the mouth of Eed River, July 
22, 1863. He was at the capture of Fort Morgan, Mobile Bay. He 
resigned January 30, 1864, at New Orleans. 

Capt. Torrey engaged with the Pennsylvania Railroad after leaving 
the army, and was soon called to a position in the office of the general 
passenger agent, where he continued until the end of 1868, when he was 
assigned to the superintendency of the company operating the sleeping 
cars over the Pennsylvania and connecting roads. He organized many 
of the lines of through cars between New York and St. Louis, Louis- 
ville, Cincinnati and Chicago, and continued in the position until 1875, 
when he was appointed "chief of the Bureau of Transportation" of the 
United States Centennial Commission. He originated and carried out a 
plan for the receipt of merchandise at the Exhibition, which has not 
been surpassed at any such exhibition. At the date of this publication

POSTSCRIPT. 



Circumstances compelled the printing of the earlier pages of this book 
while the other part was in preparation. All corrections, delayed infor- 
mation, and more recently acquired records are printed in this postscript 
arranged in paragraphs by numbers as in the preceding pages. 

As many families have not kept current records of the names of chil- 
dreu, of births, marriages and deaths, it occurs that when different mem- 
bers of one of them attempts to furnish a family record for a book of this 
kind, they disagree, more or less, in the various details, particularly of 
dates. The compiler has acted upon the assumption that a correspond- 
ent knows better than anyone else his own name, and the dates of his 
birth, etc. The records of existing families have, in nearly every 
instance, been submitted to the head of the family in the form of a 
printed proof for final revision and correction. Hence, in case of a dis- 
crepancy between the paragraphs of such a family, and the entries con- 
cerning the heads of it in the paragraph of their parent's family, the 
youngest is believed to be most reliable.

In "Davis' Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth" is found the state- 
ment that "the first clothing mill in Plymouth Colony was erected 
in 1043, by James Torrey, on the first herring brook in Scituate." 

The text to the effect that William 1-12, probably died young must 
be an error, if Davis' is correct in stating that William, the son of the 
first James, removed to Plymouth, and had a son Haviland, but he may 
have referred to 1-11 as the first James. The third son of James is given 
as Josiah, by Davis.

The maiden name of the wife of Philip 7, was Mary Smith (Savage). 
Jonathan 1-22, had a son Philip, who married April 25, 1715, Mary 
(Story) Youngman, widow of Cornelius Youngman. (N. E. Reg., 1881, 
pp. 46, 47.)

The place called Squamicut in the text, is now Westerly, R. I.

The text is in error in giving the reference to " Davis' Landmarks 
of Plymouth." The list of children is adopted from another source, 
the record of which is mislaid. 

It will be noticed that the list includes the names of but two sons, 
Abner, whose descendants are traced in this book, and Jonathan, who, it 
is believed, died while in military service against the French in Nova 
Scotia. If this assumption is correct, the Torreys most closely related 
to Abner 's descendants will be descendants of David and Adam, named 
in 2-4. Sarah probably married Peter, son of Peter and Mary (Noyes) 
Nash (Hooart). Ruth may have married John Chapman of Hanover 
{Barry). 

4-1 

The date of Abner's removal to Hamilton, is determined by the 
recollection of two living grandchildren, and the date of his death by 
the statements of two other grandchildren. The date of his removal to 
Plainfield, is determined by a statement of Dr. Barney Torrey, that he 
was fourteen years old when it took place. 

Dear Cousin: Oregon, III., December 21, 1889. 

I was six years old when grandfather Torrey went to make his home 
with uncle Jonathan, in Hamilton. After the death of grandmother 
Lydia Torrey, he had lived on his own farm with uncle "William until 
uncle William died, after which event grandfather came to my father's 
and lived with us until taken to live with uncle Jonathan. 

I remember grandfather well, and I had a great liking for him. 
Always when it was pleasant, he took me with him to call on the neigh- 
bors, and they always asked him to sing, for he had a musical voice. 
What I remember of his war experiences I have heard father and mother 
tell or talk over before me so many times that it must be so. Grandfather 
was taken prisoner and confined in what was called the " Old Hulk," in 
New York harbor. A great many died there, but he was a good cook, so 
they kept him employed at that, and of course he had enough to eat, while 
many prisoners starved. When he was let loose he walked to his home 
near Boston The first night out he stayed with some old people. He 
was covered with body lice. Well, they heated their old fashioned brick 
oven, and had him take off his clothes, and they baked them, fixed him 
up generally, and started him on in good trim At another time, prob- 
ably before that, he went up the Mohawk river in batteaux to Fort 
Sumwix, now Rome, Oneida County, N. Y. Whether they had a battle, 
or how long they stayed, I cannot tell ; neither can I tell what generals 
he was under. I always understood that both he and uncle Jonathan 
were out all through the Revolutionary War.

In 1860, Elias Torrey (6-2), stated in answer to questions by the 
compiler, "My father had a son Abner, who died when 18 years old; 
a son Daniel, who died 15 or 16 years old, and a son Amos, who died 
also when 15 or 16 years old, these ages being as stated, more or less." 

The town records of Plainfleld, Mass., record the deaths of children of 
Jonathan and Abigail Torrey. Eleanor died September 28 ; Abner, 
October 2, and Daniel, November 14, all in 1808. These deaths were 
from typhoid fever. It is a family tradition that Jonathan and his father 
were out all through the revolutionary war.

Dear Cousin: Oregon, III., January 15, 1890. 

You ask what I know about the Quincy Torreys. I have often in 
childhood heard both father and mother talk about their going to Quincy, 
and about the relatives there. Mother went there before I was born. 
I often heard her talk of it. I gained an idea of its situation on a small 
stream in which the tide flowed, and that when the tide was out they 
gathered clams to cook or bake. Some of those boys must have been 
near father's age. He was fourteen when they moved to Plainfleld. I 
think mother went "down country" more than once before she had 
many children, and she spoke of some things new to her, as of one of 
father's brothers living on an island in Boston Bay, large enough to keep 
many cows, and that they made cheese; that vessels coming in from the 
ocean stopped there for water and always took all the milk and cheese, 
no matter how green, and curd, even if 'twas ready for the press, because 
they had been so long out on the ocean, and it was good for scurvy. I do 
not think they stayed there many years, and must have left before Dolly 
went down, as she never said anything about it. Sister Dolly went down 
with father when I was six years old, and Harriet two. What small 
things fix events in the memory— father left her down there and brother 
Dura went after her in six or eight weeks. She had visited our cousins, 
the Fennos, in Boston, three weeks, where there was two or three girls 
very much liked. There she bought three dolls ; they were about ten 
inches tall, trimmed beautifully. Harriet's was dressed in pink cambric, 
while ours were of nice flowered muslin. She said Harriet was so small 
she would tear hers to pieces soon. Her bringing those dolls, and say- 
ing what she did, fixed in my mind everything she said, for I thought 
she had been to Paradise. Well, she often talked of being in Quincy, 
and about the place in the same way my mother did ; and again some 
thirty-five years ago, when I was visiting her and mother in Ohio, we 



138 

talked one day about the Quincy relatives, and she spoke of their stylish 
ways and the proud feeling of their mother. 

After I was old enough to know more about it, father was unable to 
go " down country" on account of heart troubles, but his memory was 
always "green " about the home of his childhood, and he was often talk- 
ing about his relatives, and from his talk, as well as Dolly's, we gathered 
our ideas of them, so that I have no doubts about the Abner Torrey of 
Quincy being my uncle. 

I know that uncle Abner lived in Quincy himself, and his family was 
there as long as our people kept any record of them or lived in Plainfield. 
Different people were going to Abington or to Weymouth every year to 
visit relatives left there, but those relatives seldom came to Plainfield, 
or we should have kept more knowledge of them. Uncle Abner was in 
the stone business, that is, had a stone quarry. After I was nine years 
old, father was sick a long time and gave up practice, except with 
friends, which kept him at home, and we children were more his com- 
panions in conversations and books, and he would talk about his early 
life, from which conversations I know that Quincy Abner was his brother, 
as well as if I had seen him myself. Again, the matter was talked over 
in the presence of brother Drury, about five years ago, and the fact of 
the relationship acquiesced in by him.

The compiler of the "Thayer Family" genealogy is mistaken as to 
the marriages of both Olive and Hozea Thayer. Both dates and names 
are found in the town records of Plainfield, Mass. He gives their parent- 
age as Nathaniel and Hannah (Penniman) Thayer, of Braintree, Mass., 
where the family had been settled from the first. The ancestry is 
Nathaniel 6 , born 1750 ; Nathaniel 5 , born 1709 ; Nathaniel 4 , born 1680 ; 
Nathaniel 3 , born 1658; Richard 2 , born in England; and Richard 1 , 
who came from England.

The earliest record of the Webster family, to which Julia, who mar- 
ried Henry Torrey, belonged, is of Governor John Webster, of Con- 
necticut, who by tradition came from Warwickshire, England, as did all 
but one or two of his children. His wife was Agnes . He 

was one of the first settlers of Hartford, Conn., was representative in 
1637, magistrate 1639-1655, deputy governor in 1655, and the fifth gover- 
nor of the colony 1656-7. Owing to religious disagreements he removed 
with others and founded Hadley, Mass., in 1659, where he died April 5, 
1661. His children named in his will were Matthew, William, Thomas, 
Robert, Anne, Elizabeth, and Mary. 

His son Robert remained in Connecticut, and settled at Middletown, 
and at the organization of the town in 1651 or 1652, was chosen Recorder. 
About 1660, he removed to Hartford. He married about 1652, Susannah, 
daughter of Richard Treat. He was a lieutenant and saw service, was 
a representative, received a grant of land, and died before 1677. The 
names of ten children are recorded. 

The third child of Robert Webster was Jonathan, born January 
9, 1657, whose first wife was Dorcas, daughter of Stephen Hopkins, 
and granddaughter of John Hopkins, one of the first settlers of the town. 
They were married May 11, 1681. She died in 1694, and he in 1735, 
aged 78 years. • Their first child was Jonathan, born March 18, 1682.

married December 14, 1704, Esther, daughter of Benjamin Judd, of 
Farmington, Conn., and settled in Glastonbury, Conn., and had nine 
children, the first of which ,was the third Jonathan, the date of whose 
birth has not been ascertained. 

The third Jonathan married in February, 1730, Mabel, daughter of 
John Risley, of Hartford, Conn. The records name ten children, the 
ninth of which is John, born May 12, 1747. 

John Webster, born in 1747, died October 1, 1781, and was married 
November 9, 1769, to Elizabeth House, who was probably a daughter of 
Jonathan and Elizabeth House. They had six children, the fourth being

APPENDIX. 



ETYMOLOGY. 

The origin of the name Torrey, like that of most other names, is not 
a matter of record, but only one of inference. The name may be con- 
sidered in the forms Torrey, Torry, Torri and Torre, to which several 
modified forms of spelling are obviously related. 

There are several linguistic roots of equal value, as hypothetical 
sources from which the name Torrey may have been derived. As it is 
written to-day it is composed of the root "tarr " and the suffix or termi- 
nation "ey" (y as in busy), and was probably first applied as a sobriquet 
or nickname to a family or group of persons. The suffix or ending ey 
is in accordance with the genius of our language, and implies connection 
with that which the simple root word designates. The name may have 
been given to folks living on or among very prominent steep hills, or 
natural towers, and so be affiliated to torrents, tor-heads (head-lands). 
Again the exposure of such tower-hills or headlands to the fierce heat 
of the sun, suggests the condition of baking or burning as in torrid, and 
words derived from torrere to parch; and their exposure in storms when 
the lightning may be seen flashing in their vicinity, suggests them as 
the source of the name thunder, or of the God Thor; or the name might 
have been given to persons or families who remained in the faith of the 
god Thor at the time most people about them had been converted to Chris- 
tianity. If we take into consideration the slip-shod pronunciation of 
names by many people, who, from habit or from defects in their vocal 
organs, effect changes of sound that require changes of letters in the spell- 
ing of them when they may be written for record, we can better understand 
the vague result which must follow attempts to trace family names back 
to their beginning. 

Most persons in England could neither read nor write during those 
centuries when family names were adopted by most inhabitants of that 
country. Considering the family name Torrey, the letters "rr" serve to 
insure a pronunciation which many persons give to a single "r J '; the 
"ey" for short i, is easily supplanted by " e," "y" or "&',"any one of 
which may represent short i. The root word " torr, v or possibly " lor," 
is easily varied in pronunciation (and spelling) by changes in the sound 
given the letter "o," as there used. The correct sound is that of o in 
or; yet many persons sound a long o, as in tow, and again many sound 
the o as a in tare. 

We may easily get, judging from current perversions of the name 
Torrey, such names as: Tarey or Tarry, Toreyor Tory, and with various 
changes with the final e, i and y, and these present usages of the name 



IV 

Torrey should serve to caution the investigator against all forms of dog- 
matic assurance of the derivation of it many centuries ago. 

Old records give many names that may have been changed to Torrey, 
as one of 1347, when Adam Tore was a member of Parliament from 
Edinburgh, a name which, if spoken in two syllables, is clearly Torrey. 

Webster's dictionary gives Tore, n. (probably from tear; Scot, tore, 
W. tor, a break, cut; tori, to break, cut). The dead grass that remains 
on mowing land in winter and spring. (Prov. Eng.) 

The name Torre (with variations of spelling), is common with the 
Portugese, Spanish, Italian and French people. It is a matter for inquiry 
as to the origin of it in these languages. Was it due to the Northmen? 

We have but to imagine an individual or family of Torreys isolated 
from relations who would help maintain the correct pronunciation of the 
family name, and placed within the influence of such mispronunciations 
as indicated, to establish a modification of the name, and make a new 
family name. So applying the supposition back to ascertain the begin- 
ning of the name Torrey, we can easily comprehend that the root ton- 
may have started in a perversion of tarr, or tar, fur, or turr, and in like 
way possibly of ter, tir and tyr. Probably the t and r are the only certain 
elements of sound which are necessarily in the original word. 

The following words are given as indicating, in the writer's opin- 
ion, the object from which, by some association of ideas, the name 
Torrey was probably derived : 

Torr, the Northmen's God of War, Thor. 

Tor, a steep hill. 

Turris, a tower. 

Note. — {Tory, the designation of the adherents to the crown during 

the American Revolution, is a word first used in English politics in 1679, 

said to be an Irish word signifying a robber, savage, or from toree, to 

give, as if your money.) 

"Torr, Thunder and Donner, are probably different forms of the 
name Thor, Son of Odin, and the most powerful of the Gods. * * * 
Thor, is the Scandinavian pronunciation of the name." "These three 
names then, Torr, Thunder and Donner, ma} r represent respectively the 
Scandinavian Low German and Kigh German name of the God of 
Thunder." "Thor by itself, does not seem to have been anciently com- 
mon as a Scandinavian name. Finn Magnusen (Lex. Myth.) states that 
though he could reckon up about sixty compound names, he knew no 
instance of the simple form. The name Tor occurs several times in 
Domesday Book, particularly in Yorkshire, where, both from the locality 
and the pronunciation, it is more probably of Scandinavian origin. 
There was a Thor surnamed the Long, an Anglo-Saxon or Northman of 
some note about the time of the Conquest, whose seal is described in No. 
53, of the Archaeological Journal." From " English Surnames and their 
place in the Teutonic Family," by Root. Ferguson, Lon., 1858. 12 mo.,

WAR RECORDS. 

Records of the American Revolution have been accumulating in the 
archives at Washington for more than 100 years, and are now stored in 
several rooms of the new state building in AVashington. They fill hun- 
dreds of old boxes and barrels. They cover everything from a private's 
pension affidavit to the dispatches of general officers. No effort has ever 
been made to systematize them. To look for any one paper, or any series 
of papers, would be as useless as searching for the proverbial needle in a 
stack of hay. In these records lie the history of the nation's birth. 
Their value to historians, antiquarians and genealogists is inestimable, 
and yet, for all practical purposes, they might as well be at the bottom 
of the Detroit River. Congress owes it to itself and to the people that 
these papers should be properly indexed and preserved for future gener- 
ations. It would take 200 clerks ten years to perform the work, but the 
money paid for their services would not be misspent. — Detroit Journal. 

The Archive Room in the State House in Boston contains a large 
number of documents of varied character, relating to all kinds of events 
connected with the history of the State of Massachusetts. Many of the 
papers, like muster rolls, are arranged in bound volumes and indexed. 
Others are in bundles and files, and cannot be examined without expend- 
ing much time, and at much expense. There are nine volumes of mus- 
ter rolls relating to the French and Indian Wars of the last century. 
There are as many as probably 150 volumes relating to the Revolutionary 



Vll 



War, and a vast mass of papers in files and bundles, which ought to be 
bo und in volumes and indexed. To do this will tax the State heavily, 
and be yet more expensive if the most valuable of the collection is 
printed, as it should be to avoid an irreparable loss from fire. 



MILITARY SERVICE. 

The circumstance that each of the four Torreys, brothers, who came 
from England about 1640, received appointments to military positions 
in the colonies, justifies the assumption that they, as a family, possessed 
special fitness therefor, and it is probable that they had seen military 
service in England. They were educated men. An affidavit by Philip 
Torrey (7), speaks of himself as having been a yeoman. 

Of the military service of either of the Jonathan Torreys, 1-15 and 
2-4, nothing is known to the compiler. But Jonathan Torrey 3-1 saw 
service in the French and Indian War of 1755 to 1763, and possibly it 
was his son Jonathan jr. (4-4) who lost his life in the Louisburg expedition. 
Of Abner Torrey (4-1) it appears that he was often in State or militia 
service, in both wars. The influence of the community around him, in 
Abington, may be judged by the statement that "Seventeen Abington 
men were lost in the old French War, and in the Revolutionary War, 
almost every man capable of bearing arms was in the service for a longer 
or shorter period." 

The compiler has had the Massachusetts records searched for refer- 
ences to persons named Torrey, and prints the result received herein, not 
as a complete statement, but as the best that can be done, readily, until 
the records are arranged and rendered more accessible. It is printed 
with the belief that it will be found particularly interesting to all mem- 
bers of the Torrey family in the United States. The dates of the ser- 
vice recorded indicate in each instance the war and the set of records 
furnishing the information.

Note. — The references to persons named Torrey, found in the volumes of 
" French and Indian War " and of the " Revolutionary War " records, Massachusetts 
Archives, printed in the preceding 24 pages, do not exhaust this source of informa- 
tion, as the papers there stowed in boxes and bundles are likely sources for much 
valuable knowledge, which may be made accessible at a future day. It is thought 
that persons of this family in America lived, up to the time of the Revolutionary 
War, almost exclusively within the New England colonies, and that the archives of 
those colonies should be searched for data in preparing its history. The compiler 
invites to this subject the attention of such persons as are interested in recovering 
it. The searches for what is herein given were made by George W. Brown, Esq., of 
Newtonville, Mass., a gentleman with special knowledge and skill in the matter, 
whose service is commended to any one wishing to have like searches made, 



XXXIV 

THE PLANTING OF NEW ENGLAND. 

" When the Long Parliament met in 1640, the Puritan exodus to New 
England came to an end. During the twenty years which had elapsed 
since the voyage of the Mayflower the population had grown to 26,000 
souls. Of this number scarcely 500 had arrived before 1629. It is a 
striking fact, since it expressed a causal relation, and not a mere coinci- 
dence, that the eleven years, 1629-1640, during which Charles I. gov- 
erned England without a parliament, were the same eleven years that 
witnessed the plaDting of New England. For more than a century after 
this there was no considerable migration to this part of North America. 
Puritan England now found employment for all its energies and all its 
enthusiasm at home." — John Fiske. 

These immigrants were selected material, gathered from all parts of 
England — people with strong convictions and great energy of character, 
and having enough property to allow of their migration to America. 
For nearly one hundred and fifty years after the planting of the colonies 
they received so few additions to their numbers from abroad that, by 
their inter-breeding, they progressed far toward the establishment of 
specially marked hereditary traits. To this is largely due the notable 
influence which their descendants have had in the forming of new com- 
munities throughout our vast territory, an influence much greater than 
has been their proportion in the population. 



ADDITIONAL ETYMOLOGICAL ITEMS.

Dictionary of the Scottish Language," 8 vo. ed. of 1818.

Age. 



INDEX. 



Where possible, some date is given with each name in the index to enable 
the searcher to identify the reference without examining the text. Usually 
the years of birth and of death are given, with the word " date," if the person 
was living at the time when their record was compiled. The great number of 
names in the genealogical record makes an extended index unavoidable, and 
furnishes a reason for not extending it still further, with many other matters, 
which are at best but incidental to the purpose of the book. 

The index references are, unless otherwise stated, to the family paragraph 
in which the principal account of the person will be found. The abbreviations 
used are a., about; b., born; ch., child; d., died; dau., daughter ; m., married; 
s., son.
